Is Derrick Rose Dead? Did He Get Shot?

Status: Alive

The rumor that Derrick Rose is dead is false.  The NBA basketball player was not shot, and he is alive.  Rumors regarding Rose’s death arose after a person involved in his rape case was found dead.  The New York Knicks’ point guard has been dealing with a rape case.  The 28-year-old’s ex-girlfriend accused him and two of his friends of rape.

The NBA star made his debut with the Knicks on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 against the Houston Rockets.  He scored 16 points and 5 assists.  The team is a work in progress and will continue to struggle until Rose’s case is complete and Joakim Noah fully recovers from his hamstring injury.
